Intro To Lyrical: "Soutenu Turn & Saut De Basque" / Jess & Lex - Ep02
Alexis Gilbert • 33m
Let’s learn a soutenu turn! Make sure to keep your inner thighs squeezed, and stay in high relevé to perfect it. You’ll also learn a saut de basque, which is very similar to a soutenu, but it's performed in the air and uses power from a plié. And finally, you'll get a chance to apply the technical elements learned to the first, eight counts of a lyrical combination!
Your Instructors: Jessica Richens & Alexis Gilbert
Assisted by: Gracyn Phelps & Bella Moore
